Jordan: Spending Bill that Funds Planned Parenthood and Not a Wall ‘Unacceptable’

It is less than one week until the September 30 deadline to fund the federal government. While many lawmakers think the bill passed by the Senate will fly in the House, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) is not one of them.

“This bill funds things we said we wouldn’t, like Planned Parenthood, but doesn’t fund things we said we would, like the border security wall,” Jordan said in an Associated Press (AP) report. “That’s unacceptable.”

“Republicans need to actually do what we said,” Jordan said.

Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., who, like Jordan, is a member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, warned that if Republicans want to avoid a “blue wave” in November’s midterms, the GOP needs to fund the wall in the spending bill.

“You want to stanch a blue wave,” Biggs said.“Then keep your promises — and one of those promises is to build the wall.”

“Republicans need to actually do what we said.”

Yes, they do. This isn't about gamesmanship, it's about doing what you promised to do. Anything less makes you liars and cheats.

Now is the time to see if the Republicans have a backbone and do what they promised like Pres. Trump has done / attempted. This will tell if they will allow the Democrats / Soros to keep bullying them and hijacking our Democracy or enforce their word and the Constitution.

Lock & Load the Civil War phase 2 is at our front door.

These so-called Republicans RUN the dang place and they refuse to follow the orders of the American people.
They are useless, worthless, and powerless.
